If you’re a Xbox user, you should have a pretty good idea about the Xbox Live Gold membership. It brings several features for Xbox users, including multiplayer gaming, premium entertainment apps, special offers and much more, but it does come with a price.
If you’re residing in the United States and Canada, there’s a piece of good news for you. Microsoft is offering the Xbox Live Gold membership free for this weekend for users in both countries, regardless of their current subscription status. The free Xbox Live weekend will begin on February 14th at 12:01 a.m. PT and will end on February 16th 11:59 p.m. PT.
“If you’ve always wanted to check out the latest entertainment experiences on Xbox 360, now is your chance. Xbox Live Gold member benefits for Xbox 360 will be free for all Xbox Live subscribers from 14-16 February in the U.S. and Canada. During this free Gold weekend, all Xbox Live entertainment apps and online multiplayer gaming will be available for free,” according to Microsoft’s Larry Hryb.
You could call it a free trial that Microsoft is offering to attract new customers, and make users subscribe for the membership. So, set up the reminder and test the benefits of the Xbox Live Gold membership before you decide to shell out some cash for the service.
